They are native (Storeria dekayi dekayi)

This is a little late but I just saw this while doing a search. Here's a link to Marshall University herp website. While not the most common snake in WV they are Native and located in several counties here. I have found them in kanawha county where I live. The DNR requires you to have a game farm license to keep native animals even as pets. To get a game farm license you must have a business license in WV. Total cost for the permits to keep just about any reptile in WV is around 50 bucks. Hope this Helps!! Laterz Dan


PS I would not release any WC animals from one state into another. For the reasons already mentioned in posts above.
